Children's Hospital Boston has an award-winning website dedicated to young women's health (youngwomenshealth.org), and is now launching a similar site for young men. Produced by members of Children's Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine departments and a teen advisory committee, the website provides health information for teenage boys, encouraging them to take an active role in their own health care. Topics range from acne and body piercing to fast food facts, emergency contraception, sports, nutrition and stress.
